RY X – Deliverance

RY X - Deliverance

RY X – Deliverance

An artist that needs no introduction. RY X.

RY returns with ‘Deliverance’; a thought-provoking and atmospheric track, that engulfs us with its distinctively ethereal vocal lines and undulating electronic-tones.

‘Deliverance’ is the second release from RY’s eagerly anticipated debut album, ‘Dawn’ released on 6 May via Infectious Music. A conscientious and unfeigned debut, RY discloses how the 12-track LP came to fruition via a candid process of self-discovery and trust – “I have followed my heart and it has been a beautiful process of building trust with myself, as an artist, and person.”

Exclusive Playlist: Ben Hobbs

Ben Hobbs by Mike Massaro

Ben Hobbs by Mike Massaro

South London producer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Hobbs has put together an epic playlist for Indietronica. If you don’t know of him yet, you soon will!

Still Parade – “Concrete Vision”

An artist I’ve had the pleasure of working with recently, this song reminds me of a time before I was born, in a really good way.

Banks – “Better”

This song gave me chills the first time I heard it. I love the way it builds, and the immaculate production.

Raury – “God’s Whisper”

I imagine Raury’s songs truly sound just like he wants them to sound. It doesn’t matter if they do or don’t fall snugly into a genre. I feel God’s Whisper shows that at its finest.

Jarryd James – “Do You Remember”

I love the moodiness of this song and the relentless groove with Jarryd’s confidently soft vocals.

St. Lucia – “Love Somebody”

The production on this song is great, and the fact it’s a really poppy track but has these old school instrumental sections in it.

Frank Ocean – “Lost”

A song that stays simple and interesting at the same time, I love everything about this.

Cocteau Twins – “Heaven or Las Vegas”

This is one of those songs where I straight away felt like I just knew it, which is weird because I still don’t understand the lyrics very well, but that doesn’t matter in the slightest.

CHINAH – “Minds”

I had ‘Minds’ on repeat many times when I first heard this band. It’s a really warm and nostalgic song.

Matt Corby – “Monday”

His voice is amazing, this is just good honest songwriting.

The Police – “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic”

Every little thing The Police did was magic.

Ben’s new single, ‘Cold Sweat’ is all about realisation; when you finally see the truth for how it is and now have the power to change. It is off his forthcoming debut EP ‘Sweet Enough’, out on 6 May. Pre-order it on iTunes.

Sounds like: Tears For Fears, Cape Lion, The Levity

Alpine – Gasoline

Alpine

Alpine

Australian ALPINE have been on our radar for quite some time now. ALPINE is Phoebe Baker and Lou James (dual vocals), Christian O’Brien (guitar), Ryan Lamb (bass), Tim Royall (keys) and Phil Tucker (drums).

Since forming, Alpine have toured extensively with the likes of Grouplove, KimbraThe Naked And Famous, Matt Corby, Sparkadia, Cloud Control and The Jezabels, as well as recently performing at SXSW 2013.

They are set to support Empire of the Sun on a US tour this fall and have just announced that they will also be supporting the Foals on their Australian tour.

Their debut album, ‘A Is For Alpine’, released on Ivy League Records, is available on iTunes. The album was chosen as iTunes’ Australian Alternative Album of the Year 2012, and has received critical praise from both Rolling Stone and USA Today.

The album was recorded in Melbourne with producer Dann Hume who helped the band experiment with different sounds and textures. The album ranges from songs that rejoice their Scandinavian, melancholic sound to those that toy with more dancey, disco synths.

See below for the pastel pasted video for ‘Gasoline’. There is an official video on Youtube, but we much prefer this one.
